Autumn Loves

Well, we are very much in to this lovely season, my favourite of all, so I thought I'd share with you guys my most beloved things of the Autumn period.

Seasonal Scented Candles
Cosy Spice Candle and Warm Apple and Cinnamon Candle: Tesco

There's nothing more comforting than a warm and cosy scent in your home at this time of year. Having some candles lit in my bedroom makes me so relaxed, and the scent from each of these candles are stunning individually, and a burst of Autumn freshness when you light them together. These candles both burn for up to 30 hours and were only £2 each, a simple way to add a comforting touch to your Autumn home.

Cosy Bedding
Double Bed Sheet: Asda, Throw: Primark

Now, as I have a single bed in my humble student accommodation, I always add to the cosy-ness with a double quilt. There's nothing better than getting in to bed after a long day and rolling yourself up like a little burrito and falling to sleep in your own little cocoon, well not for me anyway. To add some Autumnal charm I found my old Primark throw and added it in, and when it's extra cold I snuggle up in that before I wrap myself up in my quilt. Pure bliss!

Snuggly Slippers
Slipper Boots: Asda

Especially with the cold laminate floor of my house, we are all in need of snuggly slippers at this time of year, every year I have a different pair of these, and, sorry if I offend, I will never go back to floppy slippers, boots all the way since 2009. I've always been of the belief that if your feet are cold, then your entire body will be as well, so the most simple way to keep warm in these colder months are a lovely snuggly pair of slippers in my opinion, I'd be lost this time of year without them.

Winter Coats
Coat: Zara, Scarf: Vintage

I am such a lover of big coats, I was looking for the perfect coats in magazines while I was on holiday, in the 40 degree in Gran Canaria, believe it or not. I love my salmon pink boyfriend style cost, easily wearable, and layering up in this weather just makes you so cosy and warm. It's one of my favourite things about the season, coats mainly but the Autumn style in general.

Autumnal Nails
Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Rhossili, Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Mustard, Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Crush

Being a massive polish and nail art lover, Autumnal shades in nail polish are so perfect. They suit all the colours of the nature around you, so why not plop that colour on your nails as well? Well that's my thinking on the matter anyway. The Barry M colour selection is incredible as well, so if you're on the hunt for these kinds of shades, then Barry M is the way to go, in my opinion.

Liquid Latex: Amazon, Blood Pellets: Poundland

As you may be aware, Halloween is my favourite time of Autumn. The dress up and the escape is so freeing, and of course, Halloween make up! I've already done a post on the kind of look I'm going to be doing for this year, of course there'll probably be some changes, upgrades and different styles, I tend to make things up as I go along half the time. But I'm so excited to break out the zombie look tomorrow night, and I'll be doing a full post on my make up and costume tomorrow.

Dark Lipstick
Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick: Shade 107, Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick: Shade 380 Dark Knight, New Look Pure Colour Lipstick: Shade 67 Burgundy, Old Avon Lipstick: Dark Cherry, Revolution Amazing Care Lipstick: Love Nude

Now, I never used to wear lipstick in any capacity this time last year, that was mainly due to the fact that I have been self conscious of my teeth for a few years now which have come under damage due to some health issues, but I am currently whitening my teeth (a post coming up about this in the near future!) so my confidence about them has skyrocketed, so over the past few weeks I have been picking up new shades perfect for the Autumnal look. It suits the colours of nature as well, and I'm rather pale so a dark lip against my skin is quite the look, and I was always jealous of the people who could rock lipstick, and now I'm working up the confidence to, I shall be joining those people!

I hope you enjoyed reading, and we can all enjoy this Autumnal season together. Do you guys have any Autumn posts, I'd love a good read of them.
